evolutionary biologist, statistician, nice guy
These pages contain an overview of my research, software I have written and descriptions of short research projects in a blog.
I study how interactions between mutations affects evolutionary trajectories and outcomes.
I use laboratory automation and response surface methodologies to create protocols and methods that allow for experiments to be accurately and easily performed on a large scale.
I study the dynamics of a pathogen population that parasitizes House Finches in order to better understand microbial population biology.
I am creating explicit data generating models and methods of inference that simultaneous account for all sources of uncertainty in comparative method datasets.
I have recently become interested in large datasets that attempt to infer causal relationships between genotypes and phenotypes while only accounting for population genetics in an approximate way.
